Plastic Shit

Brutal Onion satire about Chinese workers making worthless novelty items for Americans to break and throw away.

For three weeks I worked in a warehouse that stocked bird baths, novelty flags (all important shamrock flags for St. Paddy's), and worthless plastic crap. To raise the spirits of the workers, the management posted photographs of the kids in Taiwan who made the stuff. They were grade school age and worked all day on stools with no back support. Everyone got a big laugh out of it. I was very happy to quit.
